Bala Mohammed, the governor of Bauchi State, has expressed his admiration for President Bola Tinubu, adding that his commitment to service and humanity has made him the ideal leader to give the optimism that Nigerians seek.
He revealed this to reporters in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, on Monday.
He stated that, despite party disagreements, the president has received the backing of the majority of Governors, and that Nigeria will do better in the next years.
”We have to appreciate the dedication of Mr President towards Nigeria and the reviving of the economy that is in dire need of reformation.
“So far, we have seen from his various steps that we are going forward to a new Nigeria.
”As the president prayed for the wellbeing of the country in the Holiest place of Islam, it gives me the courage that he will deliver the hope that Nigerians desires.
”In spite of our party differences I still feel great respect for the president. As he prayed for Nigeria, I prayed for him because when you pray for your leaders, you are ultimately praying for yourself,” the governor said.
Mr Mohammed said that there were a lot of assurances from the president’s precedent as governor of Lagos State that the country would be better.
”He has done it before in Lagos and look at what Lagos has become in not only Nigeria but in Africa. This is the transformation Nigeria requires and we will see it in no distant time,” he said.
